1 After he graduated school at Timir-Cham-Shura Akim emigrated to Viena.
He learned structural engineering at the Institute of Technology in Vienna. His studies were interrupted due to World War I. I am not sure if he ever graduated.

In 1921 he established a Chess section as he was not allowed to join the German Chess section. He was an excellent Chess player and took Austria championship several times.

In 1923 he got Austrian citizenship.
That same year he became the owner of the printing press and a publishing house “Victoria Druckerei Singer & Lewit”. They had 2 fast printing machines and 20,000 kilograms of lead letters (!) . The publishing house was specialized in Judaica and Chess literature.

In 1923 he published the chess newspaper the “Wienen Schachzeitung”.

Until 1936 he was the only owner of the publishing house but in 1937 he sold half.
In February 1938 he ended editing the book “Der Talmud im Feuer der Jahrhunderte” (The Talmud in the Fire of the Centuries) (It was written by Tadeusz Zaderecki a Christian Polish and was translated to German by Mina Safier). (It can be bought even today for 43 Euro).
On March 15th 1938 Akim was arrested by the police and on July 15th 1938 was sent to Dachau (block 15). On the Sep 1st 1938 he was transferred to KZ Buchenwald.

In Buchenwald he worked at braking rocks which caused him heart problems and a chronic ophthalmic disease because of his work with lime. (At one place it was written that he worked at Pathology so maybe the lime was used for covering the dead bodies).
He was released on May 15th 1945 in very poor health.
He had chronic problems with his feet having often exposed to freezing weather in the camp. May be he suffered from Trench foot. He was hospitalized several times during the years 1945 and 1955 but wasn’t cured.
He got radiation treatments for his ophthalmic problems also without success.
In 1959 he suffered 2 heart attacks.

When he was arrested his printing press and a publishing house were given to the Aryans. The machines were sent abroad and the plant was transformed into a carpentry workshop.
After the war, the compensations that Akim got constituted only 1% of the value of his business in spite of the fact that he got the highest amount ascribed by law.

It is not known when he joined the KPO (Austrian communist party) but as speaker of Russian he had great influence in the Soviet Government in Austria after the war.
Between 1945 and mid 1949 he was one of the associates in the newspaper “Neuen Weges” (New Way) and the director of the publishing house “Volksstimme” (the voice of the people).
After leaving KPO he established the publishing house Alve.

Only after his death in 1965 the fact that he was a hero of the resistance in Buchenwald became known. He was member of the political resistance and due to his perfect control of Russian he had contact with the Russian prisoners.
In October 1944 he was brought to the Gestapo Bunker were he was tortured for 3 months but kept his silence thus saving a lot of members of the resistance.

8 According to Hana Grayonzi her cousin, Zelda was married to a Jewish officer in the Polish army. When her aunt Sara and family fled from Sidelace, Zelda with her son on her arms ran after the carriage and asked that they’ll take her with them but as her husband was in the army they refused telling her that her husband would not be able to track her.
So she stayed and was killed with her family in the Holocaust.

14 Before World War I, Shlomo David Korn was famous all over Galizia Poland as one of the realy wealthy Jews of Tarnobrzeg. Before the war he owned a grate estate that included 2 villages and thousands acres and had big possessions. He was called the landlord.
After the WW1 there were no longer very rich Jew in Tarnobrzeg.

In the book “Yizkor book of Tarnobrzeg” Yaacov Fleicher (one of the Tarnobrzeg survivors) described him as modest man that came to pray twice a day in the synagogue and returned home without talking to anybody. It was after he divided his possessions between his children.
He was very religious and so he educated his sons.
He passed away at advanced age some years before World War II.

38 Details from Yad Vashem Site - Testimony page submitted by Bela Graf her sister in law.
According to this tetstimony Hava Kranz was 61-62 years old when she died, that meams that she was born on 1881. Accordind to my father (Meir Dgani) testimony his father Naftali Korn Hava's husband was born on 1885. This means that Hava was older than her husband and I am not sure that made sense in those days.
